Reverend Canon Mark Brown
Vicar of the Parish


My responsibility is to oversee the work of the Parish.

I value working together with others and seeing their God given gifts released into effective areas of service and ministry. In 1999 I was made a founder member of the College of Evangelists by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.
.

I am keen music lover and enjoy family life with my wife Allison, five children and two enthusiastic sprockers!
 
  Reverend Wendy Carr
Associate Vicar


As the associate vicar I have the privilege of walking with people through life and encouraging them on their journeying with Jesus. I have a particular heart for pastoral ministry and outreach and community engagement.


Before training for ministry in Cambridge I worked with children and families, my passion was to see children grow in confidence, to love life and to reach their full potential. 

Family life includes my husband Jason and our 2 children. We love the outdoors and exploring the countryside walking in and around Kent with our Labrador.

Andy Page
Youth & Children's Minister


As Youth & Children's Minister it's my job to make sure we're serving the young people in our parish in the best way possible, whether they're part of the church family or in the wider community of North Tonbridge. I've been involved in volunteer youth & children's ministry for over 15 years and believe God has given me the supernatural gifting for this ministry. 

I've been married to my wife Clare for nearly a decade, we have an adventurous toddler called Ezra and number two is due in early 2020. I enjoy music - being a keen drummer and vocalist - and also being in the outdoors walking, cycling, rock climbing, canoeing or trying to capture it in photographs.
  Emily Speed
Youth & Children's Work Assistant


I work alongside Andy to oversee, lead and develop the various groups we have across the parish for anyone under the age of 18. My passion is seeing the next generation of Jesus’ apprentices rise up in the knowledge they are loved and capable of amazing things in God’s name. I am formally trained in worship leading and am a graduate of the Worship Central Academy where I was under the mentorship of Anna Hellebronth.
 
I come from the wonderful town of Croydon where I grew up. I spend my spare time singing, songwriting, travelling, crafting and searching for the best coffee. Feel free to ask me anything about my story, I’ll be happy to share!
     
     

Leadership

Mike Seaman
Church Warden

As a Warden, I have several legal responsibilities concerning the Church and its premises, but our most important role is to support the clergy, staff team and volunteers who run the wide range of activities across the Parish. The learning curve is steep and the range of things we get involved in is surprisingly wide. 

I am married to Heather, we have 4 adult children who live away from Tonbridge, and we are learning to adjust to a rather busy retirement…
  Adam Calvert
Church Warden

In my role as a church warden I seek to assist the vicar and church family in the decisions and activities of the church as we work together to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ.
 
I am married to Pam and we have two daughters and three grandchildren. I moved to Tonbridge in 2018 and work in London.

I work as a full-time Licenced Lay Minister (LLM) in the Parish of St Peter & St Paul, including in a leadership role at St Saviour's Church. 

Beyond the Parish, I am a volunteer on the chaplaincy team at Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Secretary to the Tonbridge Deanery Synod and a Vocations Adviser for the Diocese of Rochester. I am also licensed as an LLM to the parishes of Chiddingstone with Chiddingstone Causeway.

Yolanda Roberts
Vicar's PA and Administrator

My role as a PA is to provide administrative support to our Vicar. I also assist the Treasurer by handling the day to day administration of the finances.

It is wonderful to discover what life is like in the church during the week, with many members of our congregation devoting their time and love to our community.

I attend St Peter & St Paul with my husband Adrian and our teenage boys. In my spare time I enjoy cooking and also walking Cooper our Springer Spaniel.
  Jane Higgs
Administrator: Parish Church

As a member of the lay staff team, it is a privilege to serve and contribute to the life of our Parish family, a part of which I have been since childhood. Over the years my faith has been challenged, and therefore strengthened, in a number of ways. 

I enjoy home life with my husband Steve, supporting our son in his varied activities, and spending time with family and friends.

PCC

 
Jane Mata
Administrator: St Philip's church and Parish Communications

I'm the person for St Philip's bookings and service arrangements, and for the wider Parish I deal with publicity, communications and the website.

You might find me running (slowly) or cycling in Tonbridge. With my husband Andy I enjoy music, galleries and long walks.

 

  The PCC, or Parochial Church Council, supports and advises the Vicar in the mission, worship and pastoral care of the Parish. It is also responsible for the finances of the Parish, and the care and maintenance of the buildings and contents in the Parish. The PCC is a Charity and its members are trustees of the Charity. The PCC and Vicar have a duty of care to ensure the safeguarding of the vulnerable in the church community.

 The members of the PCC are the Clergy, Churchwardens and others elected by the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.
A list of the current members of our PCC can be found here
